Having defeated Xiang Yu, Liu Bang proclaimed himself emperor and established the Han Dynasty in 202 BC and made Chang'an (present city of Xi'an) his capital city.
Han Xin described Xiang Yu as "having the kindness of women," meaning that, in his opinion, Xiang's "kindness" was petty and did not benefit either his regime or his people.
Xiang Yu also did not know how to utilize his talented subordinates; Han Xin, for example, was a soldier under Xiang, and his later defection to Liu Bang, for whom he served as the commander in chief, would be extremely damaging to Xiang.

Emperor Huan, indeed, had gathered a vast harem, alleged to number five or six thousand women, with servants and slaves, and ministers were protesting that the cost was becoming a major strain on the finances of the empire.
